Emery hearing set for Monday
Rep. Ed Emery, R-Lamar, is scheduled to appear in Lawrence County Circuit Court Monday to face a charge of failure to drive on the right half of the roadway, according to court records.
The hearing had originally been scheduled for April 6, but was delayed after a motion for continuance was filed by Emery's former House colleague, Sen. Jack Goodman, R-Mount Vernon, who said Emery needed to be in Jefferson City for his work in the state legislature.
The charges were filed following a 2:20 p.m. Feb 3 two-car accident on Highway 96 two miles south of Miller. Emery and a woman in the other car suffered minor injuries, according to the Missouri Highway Patrol report.
